Great app, eating battery on Lollipop I've used this app for several years now and it's always done it's job, but since upgrading to Android Lollipop it's consistently chewing through 10% of my battery life every day.

Awful battery usage bug A very useful and gorgeous app, but lately it's been my #1 battery user while not apparently doing anything.

Battery drain Recently this app started draining my batter faster than everything except the screen. I root and play with a variety of roms and have experienced this with both KitKat and lollipop.
